Testing For Other Things

Recommended Posts

So I have been reading all kinds of things on this board ,and its all wonderful. So now I have another question.

Although some of my numbers are great, I still get some bloating and have constipation. I am taking iron pills daily, also calcium, vitamin D. What else should I be looking for, I was keeping a log of food I was eating. I am going to restart another log. Could that be another form of intolerance? Any Suggestions?

some celiacs are lactose intolerant until their intestines heal---that could cause bloating.

I have heard before that iron can be hard on your stomach. I would think that that would be even more common while your stomach is healing from celiac. If your doctor prescribed the iron, maybe he would be willing for you to go off of them for a period of time to see if it helps. If it's something you just happen to be taking, then you might want to consider not taking them for a bit to see if they're the culprit.

Lactose could definitely be the culprit - but I found my bloating was worse when I went gluten-free and lactose free. I found SOY was the issue for the bloating (the gluten-free and lactose eliminated my other symptoms, however)! I haven't gone soy free (meaning, I don't worry about it as a minor ingredient in some foods), but I avoid large quantities of it b/c it definitely was making me feel about 6 months pregnant!

If your going to be taking iron make sure you also get alot of vitamin C (O.J.), it helps your body absorb it better.

Also, i personally stay away from soy. Not because of an allergy but because the same company that created the bovine growth hormone also genetically altered soy so that pesticides are inside the gene so they do not have to spray the plant. And because that's now the way it grows they can call it organic, when really your eating pesticides. Soy was originally made to bulk up cattle and doesn't have much if any nutritional value.
